Paper Making in Cranbrook with St Mary's Catholic and Kootenay Orchards School

Posted on

First of all..Paper Making is so much fun and so messy!!! The students at both Kootenay Orchards and St Mary’s Catholic School had a blast making paper before the Christmas if the energy in a school is not already pretty high the last week before school, we decided to add to it..and it was awesome!! The students all pulled together to have a great session in making recycled paper. Groups were divided into 5 groups and rotated after the first batch of pulp was was pure organized chaos but I have to say the most fun class yet..I think the students would agree. I think we all realized how much energy and resources goes into making paper and why it is so important to use is wisely..The students made bookmarks with the sheets of paper and laminated them for Christmas gifts.
